Just Wanted You to Know!

My latest post is up for The Herb Companion and it will take you back to when I spent the first bit of money to buy for my herb garden 22 years ago!  It is called Herb Catalogs:  Ready, Set and Plant Those Herbs, Part 1.  You can always click on links for my latest post on the right hand side of this blog.  So you may have guessed already that there is a Part 2 coming and it may be later today!  I was busy with those posts!

Well, fortunately for us, the forecasters were just enough off their games that we haven't had any snow!  It has been rain, but it is damp and very cold for this time of year after 70's and 80's.  Thank you to whatever heavenly being you pray to for saving our blooming plants so far!  I don't think we are out of the woods yet, but we are getting close.   The Herbal Husband went out last night and put an extra protection over the lemon verbena I showed you the other day.  Maybe too much, but I remember one year I had a pineapple sage come back and we tried to protect it with leaf mulch and ended up chopping it in half.:>(  It was horrifying!  So I did not want anything to happen to my little lemon verbena! 

OK probably overkill, but just making sure! I'm putting the final touches on the annual herb list so I think it may be posted tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest.  Hope you are warm and toasty wherever you may be.  Talk to you later.  BTW, if you think that Lemon Verbena Lady's Herb Garden is a great gardening blog, please click the link above and vote for me as one of the top gardening blogs on ecollegefinder.org!  They are picking three top gardening blogs!  No cash just the glory of saying I'm one of the top gardening blogs!  One vote per visitor and voting ends at 5:00 PM EST on April 30, 2012.  Thanks!

I lucked out and didn't get the heavy frost they predicted....2 miles farther down the road did and a friend lost lots of plants.
I voted for you today!!
